Hand-in-hand with our corporate responsibility commitment is a firm foundation from which we execute. Our methodology includes assessing important issues, setting measurable targets against global standards and ensuring we govern with integrity and accountability.
We begin by understanding expectations and capturing feedback on the issues most important to our stakeholders. We then zero in on the issues that are most pressing for our company and where we can have the greatest impact.
Once key issues have been identified, we set measurable targets in line with leading global standards, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the Science Based Targets initiative and other guidelines for responsible performance.
Our company culture is rooted in transparency to our stakeholders and accountability for our actions. Guided by a strong system of governance, we ensure a responsible approach to managing our business and that our responsibility initiatives are interwoven into our business practices.
